The PM claimed the Labour leader failed to lock up TV paedo Savile when boss of the CPS.

Mr Cox said the thugs were mainly to blame.

But he added: “If you inject poison into politics, that has unintended consequences and can at times lead over into extremism.”

Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby called the mob’s actions a threat to democracy.

In a dig at No10 he also called for a culture where “we can learn to disagree”.

The PM has yet to apologise.

His spokesman said: “The Prime Minister clarified his remarks last week to make clear he was not suggesting Keir Starmer was individually responsible for the Savile decision.”
